Top five conclusions: Brazil 3-1 Ivory Coast

Posted by - June 20, 2010 - Conclusions, Lists, World Cup

1. If there is any justice FIFA will overturn Kaka’s red card. And then call a press conference at which Kaka is allowed to elbow Abdelkader Keita in the head repeatedly until he sustains the injuries he feigned.

2. Luis Fabiano managing to weigh in with two goals which showcased both his football and volleyball skills.

3. Elano’s children might have saved his career. Or at least their shinpad namesakes.

4. Football is weird. Brazil struggle past North Korea, Italy draw with New Zealand, and yet in a match long circled on people’s wallcharts for a possible upset Brazil canter to victory with ease.

5. It is definitely a bad tournament for France – even their referee is absolutely abysmal.

    This is just the latest in a long list of screw-ups thus far, but now that Brazil have been screwed, now we have a problem. It’s rough on Kaka, but at least he’ll be back for their second round match.

    It’s hard to feel for Brazil in general, they’ve profited considerably from simulation and cheating over the years (stand up Rivaldo) and even did so in this very match (Luis Fabiano).

    If FIFA overturns Kaka’s red card, they’ll have to issue one to Fabio for flopping. Brasil’s many flops made the red card against Kaka not such a big deal. The team earned it, even if Kaka didn’t.
